    So Bobby didn't offer up an excuse for the beat down we just witnessed? Big Fish indeed has what appears to be a very solid squad.

    One thing Marlin teams don't do is play great defense. Last night 17 first half points is insane, but in the second half 28 points is crazy good too.

    Look, I'm going to have fun with Marlin name if he never loses again, and I've never disliked him. He's never approached being as good as advertised, but he's got a chance this year. My middle of the pack estimate is looking weak, but the SBC is actually looking weaker than expected. Didn't UTA get drilled by them and Coastal who got drilled by ULM?

    Very good win! Fish will need to at least win one post season game. Running through weak sunbelt wont cut it.

    Have fun with his name and I'll have fun with yours Timmy _____ ____. We could go undefeated, make the sweet 16 and you would say "well the sbc is weak and this is the worst NCAA tournament in history". You will find another reason to hate him.
    Thanks for the response _____ ____. Have a great day.

    At this point OOC is over, and we are in the SunBelt. Personally I'm enjoying watching us hammer teams, play completely unselfish (almost to a fault) offense, and I REALLY enjoyed that suffocating defense. I love when teams make every trip down the court difficult. If I coached I'd be Nolan Richardson 2, at least defensively, so last night was like watching my perfect basketball game.

    Can't do anything about the conference right this minute, so I'm just enjoying having a very good team. With Maggard at the helm, the coaching issues will be handled correctly at the right time, I trust.

    It was pretty clear to me from early on the App was having trouble handling our altitude. They were winded the entire game.

    wouldn't it be opposite? Being that they are used of breathing at high altitude, our low altitude would make it easier for them to breathe?

    I'm just clowning with the 🤡, but you're right it's about a beat down of the mountain men, and gals as well.

    Back on track.... Gant out for (hopefully) just 3 weeks... would include Coastal Saturday, ULM single home game next week, then Texas road trip... Next would be Alabama schools at home then another single game week @ ULM.... Get through those games with just one loss (@UTA seems to be toughest), and Cajuns will be fine... Should win home games and @Texas State and @ULM.

    Georgia trip is a good 5 weeks away... so hopefully back by then.

    GEAUX CAJUNS!

    What I'm saying is, last night, those guys played one of the worst games I can remember watching in conference. Sloppy, no communication, couldn't buy a bucket, couldn't finish at the rim, zero perimeter defense, looked slow and tired.

    Cajuns had a little something to do with that, but a lot of their performance was self inflicted.
    You are 100% correct. App State had a bad game. I like the Cajun team. I was especially impressed at the performance without Gant. But make no mistake... App State is not a great team. Their #1 is a stud... but they didn't look well coached last night. They suck at rebounding... by being out of position and not hustling. There's plenty of space to give both the Cajuns a lot of credit... and to limit the applause by a terrible App State performance. I think App State is ok... but they played like a Div 3 program last night. I checked out their schedule and results before going to the game last night... and that had to be their worst game this year. Blowout = 50% credit to the Cajuns + 50% credit to a poor performance on App State.

    There are two other things I like about this team. Number one, they do not play down to the competition. A state being a prime example of that. Second, in the two blowouts, they have not let up in the second half.

    Honestly Diehard? Is there a single game in there that you're dreading? Not me, every game in the next five weeks is a probable win barring additional injuries.

    Boy, was I wrong! Didn't see this coming. Holding a team to 17 points at the half and leading by 29 was not what I was expecting to see! And, all of this without Gant! Hope he gets back soon.
    On the other hand, nice to see the best crowd of the year at the dome; 4,329.

    You're sure you are not worried about them being distracted by the conference tourney?

    Joking!

    I agree, I have seen nothing so far that doesn't say we are the best team in the conference. We need to act like it and take care of business.

    For what it's worth, in the pregame interview, when Jaybird asked Marlin about Gant's absence last night, he responded quickly and confidently that they weren't going to let it slow them down or alter the gameplan. Looks like his confidence in the team's response was correct.

    Good post there. However, in today's environment it may be quite awhile before a "name" team comes to the Dome again. I am not sure I will be alive to see that happen. I have been out of town for a week and was not able to follow the last three games closely. From what I have read, the defense/rebounding in two of the three games has been suffocating. That will need to continue for the team to have success. That is especially so with Gant being sidelined for quite awhile. I will make one prediction. First loss that occurs will see a little negative over reaction. That happened after the Clemson game and I was somewhat guilty of it myself.

    Fyi, every remaining men's game and all but one of the ladies is available to be steamed online from the host institution web site or ESPN3.

    See my calendar for details.
